Cabela's Big Game Hunter 2010
There's Been Better
I love Cabela's Hunting games but this was kind of a let down. The graphics and sound were alright. But the game play was repetitive and it's literally like a walk in the park. They tell you exactly where to go and what to do, its not really a good challenge. The game got boring pretty fast. I would recommend the other Cabela's Games before this one.
Much More Potential
My first hunting game for the Xbox 360 and i expected a little more. Eye-opening graphics and at first an amazing game play, but the missions get repetitive. Hunt by hunt I was just thrown on a trail and within about 100 yards is the heard. After I beat the game once, I never found a reason to go back and play it. Most of the sounds in the game feel like they really come from nature, but there are times when it almost appears there were flaws in the production of the sound. A number of people could enjoy this game for a little bit, but do not expect it to be like the hunting games on older platforms.
This was the first hunting game I have ever played and it was great. It can get boring once u have learned the basics of the game. Anyone who is an expierienced hunter may not like this game because they may have already experienced lots of the things this game could teach u. For first time hunters I would deffinitely reccomend this game.
Old Hunting games are better
Way to easy tells you exactly where to go its stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Absolutely excellent, just a little short
I was so excited when I bought the game and I wasn't disappointed! Its fun to hunt the animals, look for tracks, then discreetly shoot your target. Its fun to unlock the different guns with the XP you earn. The thing is, I don't have much else to say. This isn't a coincidence. There aren't many levels and the levels are short. So you could easily beat the game the same day you bought it. But still, I would highly recommend it.
First off let me say that the graphics are amazing i felt like i was in the woods for real. Then the hunt started and i liked the hunter sense in a way but it kinda made it too easy.the animals acted as a real animal will,but the hardest thing in the demo was the mountian lion it took some to get it down but once you do its worth it. pricing this game at 20 dollars is like selling modern warfare 2 for 5 dollars
Call of Duty, but with Animals... Well, not Really
I do not hunt, nor will I ever. I think hunting is just straight down wrong. But hunting in a videogame is fine by me! Why you may ask. Well think about this: Killing people is wrong, yet almost everyone on this planet plays Call of Duty. Exactly. Anyways, ON WITH THE REVIEW: The graphics in this game blew me away. When playing this game, I felt like I was really in the wild hunting. It looks so realistic. The gameplay is great. Now you cannot just run wherever you want. There is a mapped course in which you walk forward until you reach the next hunt. Do not worry though! The mapped area is so open it will feel like you can walk almost anywhere. When you approach your prey, there will usually be around 2-8 of that type. Shooting a female makes you restart that hunt (real hunting rules), and some of the bigger types of the animals are worth more points. Depending on your animal, oyur distance, your gun, and your position (finding bonus point areas give you more points, these areas are usually behind cover, like a bush or rock). More points gives you medals. Getting gold medals on each hunt gives you a gold medal for that area, which gives you achievments. The hunting is pretty realistic. I'm not saying it is the perfect experience, but it is real enough and is very fun. The game also has a bonus gallery mode, which is pretty pointless. It is an arcade shooter... not very fun... no achievments or awards for the gallery mode. So with all of these problems, what is my one, BIG drawback. That is the amount of content and game leangth. Your geting a pretty long carreer mode: 12 levels with 4-8 hunts each. I think there are 68 hunts overall. Plus trying to get every gold medal and every achievment is VERY entertaining. But once you have done all of that (which may take you a while), that is pretty much it. PROS: Very fun gameplay, pretty realistic, amazing graphics, leangthy carreer mode, gold medal gaining is fun, great achievment system. CONS: Lame shooting gallery, not much content after beating the carreer, no online. CONCLUSION: I definetly recommend this game, and it is a steal for 20 bucks. I was going to give this game an 8 because of the small amount of content and lack of online. But since it is just 20 bucks, you are getting more then what you paid for.
I like this game because it is my style i hunt outdoors not just video games
This game has outstanding graphics, its a must play
ok, so i decided to try a hunting game for once and im glad i found this game.so lets get to the basics: GRAPHICS:the graphics really bring the outdoors to your t.v. and are very nice and realistic. this is no crap from 2005. CONTROLS:the controls are just like the average shooter. they are the same as like cod or any other shooter. you can steady the gun and hold your breath when you shoot. STORYLINE: so your some guy trying to get into a hunting club or whatever and you have to beat the challenges to get in. GAMEPLAY:you boss person tells you what animals to hunt and you go find them. there is some really fun minigames like shooting rabbits and birds and aiming is a real challenge if you want a gold medal on every mission. so overall this is an awesome game and you should consider getting it if you like shooting,sports, or outdoor games.
